Parts of Ohio see severe storms, some damage

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Thunderstorms in parts of Ohio have brought powerful winds that have caused some reported damage.

Many counties in northeast Ohio were under a severe thunderstorm watch or warning Sunday as a front moved through the state.

A spokesman for Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky says traffic there was diverted after a nearby roadway was closed as a result of downed power lines and debris from the storm. The spokesman says Cedar Point will be closed Monday as utility crews work to repair the downed power lines. The park plans to reopen Tuesday.

The Sandusky Register reports the storm also downed trees and power lines in the city’s downtown area.
